The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino National Forest:

Campground Hosts Volunteering [Picture provided by the Mendocino National Forest]

Recreation staff on the Upper Lake and Grindstone Ranger Districts are recruiting volunteers for Mendocino National Forest.

The Upper Lake Ranger District has a campground host opportunity at the Middle Creek campground. Volunteer campground hosts will have water, trash, electrical and septic hook-up services. Campground hosts must have a self-contained trailer or RV and be willing to provide visitor information and perform light maintenance work.

The Stonyford off-high way vehicle (OHV) program also offers volunteer opportunities. Volunteers provide basic trail maintenance and can register for training on all-terrain vehicle and motorcycle riding and chainsaw operation certification. Volunteers can also sign up to patrol trails and report trail conditions and maintenance issues.

The Grindstone Ranger District will soon begin recruiting campground hosts for Fouts and Letts Lake Campgrounds.

Staff advise those interested in volunteering to visit to create a volunteer profile and apply for positions on the forest.

Volunteering provides a great opportunity to improve forests, learn about resource management and meet new people.

Information about volunteer opportunities on Mendocino National Forest is available online at
